About Denise

With 11 years experience as a Special Educator, I have a strong passion for educating and believe that every child can be a success. We're all different and therefore, so are out learning styles. I pride myself in meeting my students where they are and setting clear goals on where they should be. I make this process a fun learning experience and I enjoy watching as students build confidence in themselves. Every child has the ability to succeed, they just have to have the support of a caring educator in order for them to believe in themselves. I have had huge success in helping students with disabilities grow in their learning, some even going from far below grade level to grade level success. Although significant growth is not always possible, I have never helped a student who did not grow at least one to two grade levels within a year or less. I am always eager to teach, it is my passion and my true calling. With 11 years experience as a Special Educator, I have a strong passion for educating and believe that every child can be a success.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ADD/ADHD

I have instructed students who have medical diagnoses of ADD and/or ADHD for 11+ years. I have assisted these student in understanding how to utilize their energy into effective completion of work. I have proven methods that allow them to grasp educational information and stay focused despite distractions.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have had 20+ years of experience working with students in elementary. I am familiar with state curriculum and have developed modified methods for students who struggle especially in math, reading and writing. I have also had proven data of assisting students to grow at least 2 to 3 grade levels in a year.

Special Needs

Over 11 years experience educating students with Special Needs. Proven success improving students with learning disabilities scores on MAP testing, some from below basic to proficient. Five years experience modifying curriculum for both the special and general education setting for students with special needs. Coach and mentor for teachers of students with special needs, instruction on how to modify and accommodate learning in all settings.

Study Skills

Despite the fact that I have 11 years of teaching experience, I have been tutoring in study skills for the past 20+ years. I have helped students develop better organizational skills, including creating specialized Planners for their liking and teaching them how to record data for understanding. I have also helped students tune into their learning style which helps them to determine what atmosphere is most effective for them. (i.e. quiet area, music/noise needed, sitting while studying, pacing/standing.) I have also developed a survey that helps them to become more aware of the study skills they need to improve on.
